in the second term than i was in the first. jonathan karl? >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> well, first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intellig
live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor telling the president that he's responsible for benghazi. the senator doubling down on the "today show" this morning. >> i'm not taking anybody on. we owe it to their families. we owe to its to other americans. for the president of the united states for two weeks to deny that that was the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> joining me now is capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. what are you hearing about the exact focus of the meeting? some are beginning certain briefings yesterday. >> well, thomas, there's an effort here to try to separate out what has been a complicated and troubling society of facts with respect to what happened with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of
he's at 60.6. his margin over john mccain was 9.9 million. this us date was 2.9. he had a 7.2% margin over john mccain and a 2.1% margin over mitt romney. he becomes the first president getting a smaller share of the vote than he got in his first term. jim me seasonna gave a series of interviews where they said we are not going to be able to get where we need to get vick fly by talking about what you have done and painting a pretty picture of what you achieved. we have to go after romney's wealth, business experience and character with early advertising to drive up his negatives. this is a grand bet it's a dangerous strategy. because fit doesn't work out we won't have enough time or money to try something else. the president said go do it. they proceeded to slam romney in the summer. and what we have is a disappearing electric rats. we'll have 10 million people vote in 2012 than 2010. this is the first election in four previous elections where the share of the voting age population will decline, not increase. megyn: there has been soil searching in the republican party to diagnose the

know was derailed by the scandal. senator john mccain is one of several republican lawmakers remanding more information from the obama administration on just what the heck happened in benghazi and around benghazi. he's scheduled to give a news conference at the bottom of the hour and we are going to have measure on that. our dana bash has been doing the best she can to take in all of the information. listen, this is tricky. so many of these stories are interconnected. there is a lot of reporting. not all confirmed, but u maybe just start with this. how has this matter worked out that general petraeus will indeed show up on capitol hill and testify voluntarily? >> well, it started with the senate intelligence chairwoman, dianne feinstein telling us yesterday that that was her desire. in her words, that's a big stone left unturned if petraeus doesn't come up here and tell members of congress what he knew about what went on in benghazi, so that's where it started. then late yesterday, members of the senate intelligence committee met and decided it was imperative to invite him. dianne fein
>>> tomorrow night, i'll talk to senator john mccain with his battle with esident obama over benghazi. that's all for us. "ac 360" starts now. >> good evening. 10:00 on the east coast. we begin tonight looking for facts not offering opinions or trying to play favorites. not supporting democrats or republicans. you can find that on plenty of other cable channels. just finding the truth, finding the facts. tonight the focus on what played out in washington today. two foes back at it again. the battle over benghazi, the attack that killed four american. senator mccain has maintained either white house negligence or a cover up. he took it a step further and said that he would try to block any effort to promote ms. rice to secretary of state, should hillary clinton leave that post. president obama took the opportunity to fire back directly at the senator. >> if senator mccain and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply
thought you were -- >> brian: senator graham and john mccain heard this and this is what they said. >> i will hold her accountable and she volunteered for the assignment. she is incompetent when comes to benghazi and the person i blame the most is the president. my response to the president of the united states. we are not picking on anybody. and we want answers and the buck does stop at your desk. >> in the presidential answer he contradicted as brian. she went at the direction to the white house and in the same breath but he said you go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi . so which one is it? and by the way, now that it is admitted that the white house sent her out there there will be more questions of whether the white house was the people behind the her giving the information >> brian: he said w. it was a supposed debate. read tran script. we did, did ambassador rice read the tran script. >> steve: one point in his presentation yesterday the president referred to her appearance on the five shows as's presentation and she wanted to state the facts as the white
more in this hour for our audience as well. up next, senator john mccain missed a briefing on the benghazi attack while holding a news conference. well, he slammed the president and susan rice over her potential nomination that doesn't exist at this point for secretary of state. meanwhile, mccain is now being criticized for slamming ambassador rice but supporting secretary of state condoleezza rice, despite the intelligence failures under her watch. >> that was an entirely different situation. >> plus, smackdown from the right. governor bobby jindal leads the republican backlash against mitt romney's excuse for not winning. why romney's claim of the president's, quote, gifts to blacks, latinos, women and young voters, might be an official hat hash tag fail. >> i don't think that represents where we are as a party and going as a party. >> new comments from the rnc about why romney really lost. we have new information from their official report, and guess what it's missing? the word "gifts." join our conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall a and @newsnation. ♪

senator john mccain and graham who say they do not trust her. >> if senator john mccain and senator graham want to go after someone they should go after me. i am happy to have that discussion with them. for them to go after the u.n. ambassador would had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation base the republicans are trying to see would will blink over extensions of the bush operation upper income tax cuts. the president says raising those taxes and corporate taxes would account for half the money needed to avoid the automatic tax hikes and spending cuts the fiscal cliff is made up. he turned the question around warning against letting taxes go up on the middle class. >> what doesn't make sense. our economy can't afford that right now. certainly no middle class family can afford that right now. nobody in either party says they want it to happen. >>reporter: the president begins talks with congressional leaders on friday and they have until the end of the year to reach an agreement. >>shepard: paula broadwell who had an affair with general petraeus admitted she took
these republicans meaning john mccain and others don't have the support of some of their high ranking republicans like the house speaker. never mind the democrats. but what cnn's ted barrett has learned is that john mccain in particular missed a rather important closed door briefing giving information about what happened in benghazi and what he was doing at the time is having a press conference calling for this select committee complaining about not getting enough information and ted barrett learned he was not alone. very few republicans, most of the republicans on this, the homeland security committee actually came. since then, mccain's office told us that that was a scheduling error and why he didn't attend that briefing. but also, before we got that information, ted actually bumped in to john mccain in the hallway here and they had a very testy exchange when ted was trying to get information about why he didn't go and mccain said to him that he had no comment. ted said, why? i'm quoting here from senator mccain. i have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell
you go from getting 44% of the hispanic vote to 31% at john mccain in got to 27% that mitt romney got, that is a bad situation for republicans. when you have the group of growing faster than any other group as part of the electorate and you are shrinking in your share of the vote, that is a big problem. this is one republicans are going to have to deal with. the other groups -- obama did not do well among the white women. the number is a little distorted because so many are hispanic women. an african-american woman that may be voting for the democrats for other reasons. host: exit polls show that female voters went 55% to 45%. guest: we have a gender gap a denture every election except for 2010. and republicans came out even. in presidential elections they have not done well. 11 points is a lot. we will have to think about doing better. i think you do better when you have better candidates. host: talk about the third part of the editorial, the young voters. guest: when they get older, they become more conservative. i do not mean to be dismissive about that. one of the surprises about
john mccain as secretary of state. martha: what you think about that? >> i like john mccain very much. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from general david petraeus in the coming days. there is more to be told and we will get to the bottom of it. we will see whether susan rice continues to stand by as we move forward in the process. bill: 12 minutes away, we have jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." martha: and we are awaiting a news conference on the att
secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and i think that's some
of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turnout, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote, it was just huge. you look at the states, look at florida, colorado, you look at nevada, you could even argue iowa, but state after state, the latino vote, if you take it out, the democrats would have lost, even in florida, it was 61-39 including the cubans. cuban-americans are not no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but the younger generations of cuban-americans vote like puerto rican or dominican voters, not the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans, that was the biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. i remember covering the 2000 race. gore and bush. i think bush won the asian-american vote before september 11th, asian-american was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday, it was 3-to-1 democratic. urban-rural, it's -- mirror images. it's roughly 60-40, and demographically, which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you wouldn't want to bet on rural americ
as the replacement for secretary hillary clinton. but republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham said they questioned statements that rice made after four americans were killed in that september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it is within the power of a single senator to stop a nomination, which is why the president got his back up today. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> pelley: this will be a donnybrook. so we asked wyatt andrew
trying to make it an issue now. >> yeah, he really pushed back on john mccain and lind say graham and called it outragious he said if you have a problem take it up with me. i think he was very testy today. and what he was doing was saying okay you want to make this an issue buddy, dare me to nominate her. it sounded to me, reading between the lines. it is something that he is interested in doing. this is a political fight that is not going to go away. i think one thing that struck me is that the president talked about going after her because she is quote an easy target. what does that mean? is it because she is a woman and is the only one out there using the information that she had? it is interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president is talking about. >> there is still so many thing that is we don't know. is it surprising that they are going after secretary of state rice and not clinton? >> no, i don't. right now, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him and think he has the experience. i don't think it has to do with her womanhood.
about anything. and he punches above its weight class. he is engaged on benghazi. kelly ayotte, john mccain, jason chivers, some of us are young enough that we will be around matter how much they want to store mall. we will be around to get the answers, especially for the families of those four murdered americans. lou: coppersmith, we appreciate you being here and your efforts are congressman trey gowdy. >> thank you. lou: much more on benghazi, and the testimony of general petraeus later in this broadcast. negotiations about the fiscal cliff. partisan rhetoric is rampant. can this president and these leaders really reach a deal? acclimate ron christie join us in moments. final resolution. the deadly bp oil spill results in record fines and multiple criminal charges. we will have the latest 40 straight ahead. lou: negotiations to solve the so-called fiscal cliff begin in earnest tomorrow. does anyone believe america's leaders can make a deal here? monica crowley and ron christie join us here and just moments for that and much more. it's nice moneyline, stocks have been steadily fall
clinton. >> we'll do whatever is necessary to block the nomination. >> reporter: senators john mccain and lindsey graham said rice was either lying or incompetent when she made this statement five days after the attack. >> we don't have information at present that leads us to conclude this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: president obama said the ambassador was presenting the intelligence information she was given. he challenged those who attacked ambassador rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. >> reporter: senator mccain accepted that offer. >> the president of the united states, the commander-in-chief is the most responsible and i hope the president has no illusions about our view of his responsibility. >> reporter: mccain and graham want a watergate style committee to investigate the benghazi attack. and general petraeus will testify here on capitol hill tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. back to you. >>> president obama and republicans in congress have staked out their position on the so-called fiscal cl
hope it dissipates soon. >> senator john mccain joins me now. you said you are going to block susan rice's nomination if president obama nominates her. her supporters say she was repeating the assessment she had been given about the benghazi attack. a spokesperson confirmed that they confirmed the attack and later the assessment changed do you not believe that? >> well first of all, talking points came from the white house not from the dmi. it was obvious within the 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. it was obvious to one and all that this was not a quote spontaneous demonstration because in realtime, they saw that there was no demonstration. ms. rise, i hope, saw ambassador rise, i hope, saw when i was on "face the nation" that immediately after she spoke, the head of the national assembly said it was an al qaeda attack. every one new that. and she continued to tell the world through all the talkshows that, that it was a quote spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that is not competence in ny view. and i think that she sh
, even personal. libya has become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain who insisted the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> for the president for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either cover-up for it is in confidence. >> un embassador susan rice denied it, infuriated republicans. lawmakers were briefed on libya. the democrat said theat u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect intelligence. >> this is something involved -- involving into something militant. >> there had been earlier attacks. the warning from chris stevens the day he died. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people who stayed here in washington continued to deny additional security and they continue to do away with security that was already there. >> democrats pushed back. >> to lay this at the doorstep of the president or secretary of state or the u.n. ambassador, you will find us ready and willing to resist to the teeth. >> a fight over tragedy that could be calmed by david benghazi to hawent to investigate and wil
the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperformed. >> i'm guessing it is bigger in 2012 than in 2008. >> at the performance is a little bit overstated. dig into the data. it is not quite impressive as the polls might have suggested. i had to brag a little bit. i was having a fierce twitter debate over the nature of ohio. nate's model has predicted in this election and had a 49.6% chance to beat ohio in the electoral vote. the tipping state was colorado. where did romney's 47% remarks get him? 47% of the vote. >> we talk about how non-whites are growing, particularly among latinos. unions are shrinking. for the 6% of voters were from the union households. this ticket was only 18 percent. i do think that you are right. it will be more about the sun belt than the rest. >> non college white union members. this is pretty striking. >> let's have another question. in the front. >> you spoke about the long-term trends of declining voter turnout and increased polarization and the emotionalism of v
and republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham. it began to escalate earlier this morning when the senators vowed to stand in the way of the president if -- if he goes ahead and nominates the united nations ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton secretary of state. mccain and graham are scathing of rice's early remarks about the deadly attack on the u.s. diplomats in benghazi, libya. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration. and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality. i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has got to start paying a price around this place. >> let's see what happens here. but we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> all right. listen to the president's very, very angry response to senators mccain and graham during that white house news conference.
something about john mccain. i don't know if you're aware of this, but he along with several other republicans did not attend the hearing today, but he's blood pressure very, veocal on issue. a cnn producer skz him, by the way, instead of coming, he was holding a press conference calling for a separate investigation into benghazi, so a cnn producer asked why he didn't go to the hearing and here's what he said -- >> not going to comment on how i spend my time. >> is john mccain being too political? >> well, look, first of all, that was yesterday. and yesterday was a closed session of the intelligence committee. today was the hearing and today was where the director of national intelligence, the head of the counterintelligence agency, the cia, fbi, state department, they were there and john mccain was at that hearing. >> so you feel any criticism of him is unfair. people have been picking on him for this, sounds like you're depending him. >> john said he had a scheduling conflict and i'll take him at his word. >> you were a former ambassador yourself. rand paul was on the show last n
and john mccain and others who have supported comprehensive immigration reform in the past. we need to seize the moment. my expectation is that we get a bill introduced and we begin the possess in congress very soon after my inauguration. some conversations i think are already beginning to take place among senators and congressmen and my staff about what would this look like? and when i say comprehensive immigration reform is very similar to the outlined of previous efforts of immigration reform. i think it should include a continuation of the strong border security measures we've take . we have to secure our borders. i think it should contain serious penalties for companies that are purposely hiring undocumented workers and taking advantage of them. and i do think that there should be a pathway for legal status for those who are living in this country, are not engaged in criminal activity, are here simply to work, it's important for them to pay back taxes, it's important for them to learn english, it's porn for them to potentially pay a fine but to give them the avenue whereby they
to think. that's worse, i think. i am getting the last word. pat, always nice to see you. senator john mccain, me and senators lindsay graham and kelley iiot came to the flor. we poke with senator john mccain earlier. >> thank you, earlier, you were on the senate floor, asking for -- making a resolution for a select and the to -- select committee to investigate benghazi, why? >> well, this tragedy covers jurisdiction of at least four committees. there are certain committees like foreign regulations that have to do with the state department. intelligence, cia, so it crosses a number of boundaries. what we need is what we had after watergate, iran-contra that we would put together a select committee to put together jurisdiction over all the issues. that's the only way to address this terrible tragedy and debacle. >> it's profoundly more efficient because you don't have one official testifying before several committees. >> exactly. again, so many of these activities cross these different lines. cia and d.o.d., department of defense were involved in the protection issues. state department and cia
